Born on the Caribbean island of Jamaica, O’Jay came to the United States as a teenager for his educational pursuits. He graduated from CUNY- John Jay College with Honors in Cellular and Molecular Biology and a minor in Philosophy. O’Jay’s fascination for science and asking big questions led him down the path of physician scientist training. He is now an MD-PhD candidate at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. O’Jay strives towards identifying the control mechanisms of the immune system and employing them in the fight against cancer.
His love for the biological sciences is reinforced through his everyday immersion in medical and graduate training. He takes pride in teaching difficult topics to students, but most importantly, seeing their passion for the subject material grow. At Cambridge Coaching, O’Jay specializes in biology and the medical school admissions process. He has used his unique experiences to guide college students towards crafting quality medical/graduate school applications and admission strategies.
Outside of the classroom, O’Jay spends a lot of time with family and his energetic 2-year-old son (he knows a lot about time management and dedication). He also enjoys cooking, reading, playing soccer and volleyball, running in Central Park, and watching sports.
